Passionate Aviator Peter Lubig Remembered

A celebration of life will be held Saturday at Peterborough Airport for talented aviation journalist and accomplished aviation professional Peter Lubig.

Lubig died Nov. 4 from cancer and the family services have already been held in Calgary. The Saturday event is intended for all of his many aviation friends and colleagues in Ontario to say goodbye in a forum that Lubig would be happy and comfortable in.

“Peter influenced many people at multiple levels within the Aviation community. He is missed by many,” his wife Bonnie Calwell told COPA Flight. “We are hoping the weather will be good as we are also referring to this gathering as a fly-in.” Lubig was a highly respected senior captain on RJs for Jazz but his true passion was flying small aircraft, including the Short Wing Piper he lovingly restored and rebuilt. His other passion was aviation photography and he had regular assignments with Canadian Aviator magazine.

The Saturday event will be held at Complete Aviation Services Ltd. (World Fuel Services), 925 Airport Road, Building 129 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
